As part of Drumlanrig’s involvement in the Rag Bag
scheme, a collection bag was sent home before Christmas with the children
to be filled with unwanted clothes,
towels, sheets etc.
The Rag Bag scheme has been developed to increase
community awareness of the importance of textile recycling. It will
also help raise funds for the school. The textiles are recycled in a
variety of ways and we are therefore keen to collect all qualities of
textiles (even ripped ones or ones with buttons missing!!!).
Altogether we raised more than
£200 - thanks to everyone who donated.

Phones and Ink Cartridges
We have recently received
our first delivery as part of this on going promotion. This included a
set of red kits with embroidered badges and 20 footballs. Thanks to
everyone who has recycled items in the box in the school foyer.
Following the very successful 'Kits for Kids' promotion last year we
are being invited to take part in another scheme to receive free
football kits and equipment.
Run by 'Errea' who manufactured the 'Daily Record Kits' we are asked
to collect old printer/toner cartridges and mobile phones so that they
can be recycled. There items contain dangerous chemicals and take many
years to degrade when dumped in landfill sites. So recycling them is
good for the environment.
The empty cartridges and old phones can be handed in to Mr Hunter or
Mr Crawford or placed in the 'bucket' in the school foyer.
Thanks for your help with this promotion.
